How a Trampoline Enclosure Keeps You Safe

By Edited Nov 13, 2013 0 0

Many trampoline owners will be able to attest to the uniqueness of using this wonderfully simple yet not only very entertaining but also a great workout. Jumping up and down on a trampoline, indeed, is an experience like no other. The feeling of being higher in the air for longer moments is truly something few other simple devices can imitate, a sort of temporary flight that has to actually be experienced, so it is a difficult sensation to describe. There are some things to watch out for when using your trampoline, though. For one thing, it takes some degree of physical strength and fitness, and some measure of focus to be able to control where you are bouncing on, lest you fall off and injure yourself on solid ground. Lucky for you, designers of trampoline equipment have long foreseen the possibility of this happening, and have attempted to increase the overall safety of your trampoline via the creation of the trampoline enclosure.

What many people may not know is that there are many different danger spots on a standard trampoline. Other than the ground around the trampoline, there is also the frame itself. Also, wear on the trampoline may sometimes cause the strong springs that allow it to hold the weight of a person to tear through the fabric and become exposed. It is precisely these sorts of incidents that a trampoline enclosure is designed to prevent. Depending on the type of enclosure, it may range from simply being several poles with which to hold safety netting up to more safety oriented designs which also include padding for the trampoline frame bars and springs themselves.

Whichever enclosure you get for your trampoline, though, be sure to keep a few things in mind. The first and most important is to get a trampoline enclosure that fits well onto your trampoline. This requires good measurements of not only the perimeter but also the shape of your trampoline, in order to get the best set of poles to use around it. Some enclosure setups might even only suit a particular brand of trampoline, so make sure you keep your eyes open for the possibility of that. Also, watch out for the amount of weight your trampoline can support, as some enclosure setups may weigh your trampoline down too much for it to function properly. This may be particularly true with enclosures designed for heavy duty trampolines. Finally, watch for the material used for the enclosure poles: heavier people might require more durable, heavier and less flexible poles in order to support their weight. It also helps to get enclosures that also fit well with the structure of your trampoline, particularly those that slope outward near the base. This increases the trampoline's center of gravity, thus greatly decreasing the possibility of the trampoline toppling over due to a wrongly placed bounce, making it a much safer object to bounce on.
